Beauty standards in 2018: Lebanon and Russia elect same beauty queen?

On Sept. 30, Maya Reaidy beat out 30 other contestants when she was crowned Miss Lebanon 2018. People couldn't help but notice Reaidy's resemblance to Lebanon's 1971 pageant queen, Georgina Rizk.

But, it seems as though Reaidy has more than just one lookalike. 

On Thursday, someone took to Twitter to point out the Lebanese beauty queen's doppelgänger in Russia. Funny enough, her lookalike is Miss Russia 2018, Yulia Polyachikhina.

Well, it got people thinking if the two are related  ... perhaps because Reaidy's mother is actually Russian.

It all started with this tweet

"Cousins?"
